Follow Friday (2)!!

 
Follow Friday!

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted my Parajunkee  and Alison Can Read! You follow, they follow and gain blogger buddies!!

"If you are new to the #FF fun, Feature & Follow Friday is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers. Feature & Follow Friday is now hosted by TWO hosts, myself of course and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

Now to make this #FF interesting we do a FEATURE blogger. If you are interested in becoming a Feature click on the drop down link above FEATURES > Feature & Follow Friday and get on the waiting list!  It is also required, that if you participate you must follow the hosts (
Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) and the two Feature blogs."

This weeks question --

Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?

This is going to be a spoiler fest so try to write the title of the book as a dominant feature - and warn people about spoilers.

I have two endings I want to change, for two very different reasons:

First, it would be Breaking Dawn. Unlike many, I did really like Renesmee's name and thought it very Harry Potter-ish, but I was appalled by the whole imprinting thing. I mean there HAS GOT to be some serious psychological ramifications later down the line for both the Imprinter and the Imprintee. seriously. I didn't like that there was this huge build up and no battle, though I have heard that for the films, (Meyers' request) they are having a huge battle with the Volturi and many people will die, only for it to be revealed that Alice was having a vision, showing the Volturi what would happen if they were to fight, so that will be cool. Though I didn't like BD as an end to a (bad-ish) series, I did like its ending. The last scene between Bella and Edward was probably the most romantic-ish moment in the entire franchise.

 Second, I would change the ending of Libba Bray's The Sweet Far Thing, only because I utterly loved that book and thought it wonderful and beautiful and I never wanted it to end. I would change the ending simply so I could have read another 400 or so more pages, of that 800+ novel! Loved that book.
Peace and Gravy,

  3. I haven't read any of Libba Bray's book but I might just have to check it out. I felt the same way about Breaking Dawn it's pretty gross the whole imprint on a baby thing :(

  6. Hopping through. I like Renesme's name too. Actually I don't like the name itself - it sounds bad to me - but I love how it honors Renee and Esme and her middle name honors Carlisle and Charlie.

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm a new follower now. I disagree with the Breaking Dawn thing, except when the comment is about wishing for a battle scene. I think that would have been good. Other than that I was okay with it all.
